The Herald Fire Protection District board will consider whether to reinstate Lance Newhall to the board of directors at a special meeting tonight.
The board voted on May 15 to remove Newhall from the board for reportedly criticizing a district employee in private. Newhall claims that the board acted illegally to remove him.
Newhall’s removal resulted in a firestorm of Herald residents who protested the move.
The board will reconsider its decision at today’s meeting, which will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Hendrickson Hall, 12746 Ivie Road, Herald.
